No shit? I'll look into it.


From wiki:

Quote:
Haldeman received a letter from Robert Heinlein congratulating him on his Nebula Award, which "meant more than the award itself". According to author Spider Robinson, Heinlein approached Haldeman at the awards banquet and said the book "may be the best future war story I've ever read!"
Dayum.

Do it. I, too, enjoyed it, and I'm picky about my sci-fi.

Great book. I love the part where due to relativity he would travel forward in time and experience the social evolution on Earth. Picture a soldier from the Revolutionary War mixing with soldiers from the Vietnam War.

Okay folks let's all change our positions on impeachment articles.


The president obstructed justice in an effort to delay, impede, cover up and conceal the existence of evidence related to the Jones case.
